CALGARY, June 5 /CNW/ - Leeward Capital Corp. ("Leeward") is pleased to
announce that it has closed its previously announced private placement of
6,666,666 units (the "Units") at an issuance price of $0.15 for gross
aggregate proceeds of approximately $1,000,000. Each Unit consists of one (1)
common share on a flow-through basis and one-half (1/2) of a warrant
("Warrant"), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to acquire
one (1) ordinary common share ("Common Share") for $0.18 for a period of one
(1) year and thereafter at $0.22 until June 4, 2010.
In connection with the issuance of Units, Leeward has paid Limited Market

secured from the financing and has also issued an aggregate of 666,667 options
(the "Financing Options") to acquire such number of Units equal to
approximately 10% of the total number of Units issued under the financing.

Share and one-half (1/2) of a warrant ("Financing Warrant") and the remaining
terms of the Financing Warrants are the same as the terms of the Warrants.
The net proceeds from the issuance of Units will fund ongoing drilling
activities on Leeward's Nithi Mountain Moly Property located in central
British Columbia. The focus of the additional drilling activities will be to
extend the high grade molybdenum mineralization of the Delta Zone and to carry
out further drilling on the Sigma and Theta zones.
